We are planing a Bullhead fishing trip Memorial Day weekend, and was wondering . What would be the best bait to use.

LOL.

OK, I'll bite.

That would depend on the body of water you are going to. Where are you headed?

A rusty coffee can, It has to be rusty or no bullheads

We are going to Sorum Dam in Perkins County. Last time I fished there was 1985 and there were lots of nice Bullheads. But since the drought years I don,t know if theres any fish left in it .We used small chunks of Hotdogs and Nightcrawler . Just wondering if there was any thing else they like.

About 60 years ago, we would just pick up a jack rabbit off the road, and cut chunks for
bullheads. I haven't fished for bullheads for years, but earthworms and night crawlers would work good.

Here today, gone fishing tomorrow, and living the good life!

We made the trip to Sorum Dam and found out from a lady at the Reva store that the lake had totally dryed up 2 years ago and all fish were killed. It filled back up this spring because of the flooding up north . Rumor has it G.F.P made a stocking this spring, but it will be a few years before there are catchable fish.

you could use your toe nail clippings to catch a bullhead, there not picky and you can use about anything to catch one.  If you want to catch bullhead and bluegill all day long, go to the little lake of pigors, GFP stacked it with bluegill. you put your hook in the water and pull up.  Its a nice little lake and the best part about it is... you will never get skunked.  You might run across a 15 inch northern here and there.
